Phase three of the project at Kishorn Port for the Scottish Salmon Company has progressed largely over the past couple of months. The photos show the base slab and walls being formed for the purification tank, which is used for the breeding of salmon parr. Keep an eye out for more photos to follow soon.
Recently we added the XC24 crushing bucket to our variety of equipment. The bucket is located on site at Applecross and is allowing us to recycle broken rock from the course of the pipeline. Broken out rock from the pipeline is put into the crushing bucket where it can be crushed down to 0-40mm pieces and then re-used as pipe bedding. This saves purchasing and importing materials from the nearest quarry, which at Applecross is located over an hour from site, helping us to reduce our carbon footprint.
We have recently completed work on a local landscaping and surfacing project. Some of the works included supplying and laying reclaimed sett stones as kerbing, repairs to an existing stone wall and drainage improvements. Additionally, we improved the access road with hardcore and supplied and laid decorative gravel, screened topsoil and premium quality turf to form new lawns. The job took approximately a month to complete and was finished a few weeks ago after we supplied and laid tarmac surfacing. The client has expressed their delight with the completed work and is already looking at further improvements. Take a look at the pictures below to see how the job progressed.
